Tillandsia Houston "Cotton Candy"
An incredible cross between a T.stricta x T.recurvifolia, the Tillandsia houston is a beautiful plant! The best features of both of the parent plants are displayed in the T. houston. It gets its fast growing rosette shape from the T. stricta, and its lovely silver color from the T. recurvifolia.
The T. houston was hybridized by Mark Dimmitt, an avid botanist, who is known for his many Tillandsia hybrids that he grows at his greenhouse in the Sonora Desert in Tucson.
